About the maker
This is Bruno Allion's domaine, a very renowned Loire Valley winemaker. From 2017 his vineyard and winemaking will now be looked after by two different couples, however, the place, grapes and process all will remain as consistent as ever.
Anouk Lavoie-Lamoureux and her husband Paul-André Risse are one of the couples who have taken over a portion of Bruno's domaine. After becoming disappointed with their life in the field of respiratory diseases and both having a passion for wine they decided to follow their dreams as vignerons. In 2016 they fell in love with Bruno's biodynamic vineyards, laden with fruit trees and small vegetable gardens. 2016 was Bruno's last full vintage. Bruno worked with Anouk and Paul during the 2017 harvest, guiding and teaching them everything they know and was still 'on call' for the 2018 vintage. They continue to work as Bruno did, with a deep respect for what he has created. All the wines are certified biodynamic.See the Les Jardins des Theseiis collection here
